The park features over 70 exciting and fast-paced challenges, including climbing walls, hurdles, monkey bars, and bridges, and so much more. Guests are given 45 minutes to play on or complete the course plus unlimited access to the Aqua Park. With an exciting springboard jumping tower, a 25-foot trampoline of your dreams, and even a wild free-fall waterslide, this place can wear you out – in a good way! There’s also a 12-foot climbing wall (aptly named the Iceburg) in the water park area, which has unlimited time. And that’s not the only thing that’s unlimited – there are free lockers, free sun umbrellas and chaise lounge chairs, free floaties, and free parking! Visitors must be at least seven years old and 45-inches tall. Tickets are $54 per trip, with second challenge course sessions available for $10. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures also offers rest and relaxation for families making the trip. Adults and teens can chill in nearby hammocks and shaded lounge chairs. Adventure Island features great food and drink options for those who get hungry while taking in the amazing activities and views in this Hill Country setting. They also feature frozen drinks as well as wine and beer options!

This awesome floating water park boasts 1,000 feet of gorgeous lakefront property where guests can soak up the sun in a getaway from the every-day. Similar to its sister operation at Lake Travis Zipline Adventures, it’s a thrilling world-class experience. Co-owner Brian George explained that while the adventure is great for everyone from kids to experts, “One of the best features is its beautiful location. We want to provide an opportunity for Central Texans to escape their surroundings… Adventure Island will make you feel like you’re on vacation at an exotic location.”

But don’t just take the owner’s word for it. Here’s what some customers have to say:

“This place is awesome!  My 11 and 9-year-old had so much fun, and I did too! The obstacle course is a blast, and you can enjoy four other water inflatables all day.  It is really well run, it’s a beautiful place to hang out for the day, food truck is great, and employees are so friendly and helpful.  I highly recommend!”              ~Shelley Parker

“We had a blast at the Waterloo!  It was great fun for my 6-year-old daughter, me, and the large group of mid-twenty-year-olds in our session. Between the four open objects, the course, the option to add an additional challenge course session, and the food on site, our next visit should be a full day.  The staff were all great, and we look forward to coming back!”              ~Christopher Foote
